Pour in the pizza sauce and spaghetti sauce. Add the cheese, mushroom, mushroom liquid and bell pepper. Mix until well- blended. Cover. Bring to boil. Then, reduce fire to low, simmer for 5 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Put the cream. Stir immediately. Bring to a light bubble. Dump in the buttered pasta. Toss until blended. Put in a platter.
